This zingy fresh green puree is crammed full of different green fruit and vegetables. Perfect on its own or mixed in a smoothie, this also is great on the go for a snack or in a lunch box.

Preparation: 5 minutes

Cooking: 10 minutes

Suitable from 6 months

Ingredients

  • 1 medium apple, peeled, and chopped into chunks

  • 1 medium ripe pear, peeled, and chopped into chunks

  • A handful of kale (approx. 20g)

  • A handful of baby spinach, washed (approx. 20g)

  • 2 tbsp coconut milk

  • 1 basil leaf

Method

  • Place the apple chunks in a steamer (add the pear also if not quite ripe) and steam for five minutes, then add the kale and spinach and continue steaming for a further 4 minutes until the greens have just wilted and the apples are soft.
